No not Kenny.. I'd hate it if he did poorly as he did at Newcatle as that would tarnish his repuation at LFC..
Lets think of Kenny as the master he was when he was manager and think fondly of it.. The game has changed since he was last manager..
We need someone whose got the drive anf passion and isn't scared to put players in their place.. Such as Mouriniho..
Mouriniho may not be this likeable manager but he got the job done cos of his aggrogance...
Hodgson just is too nice a man... He's way out of his depth at LFC..
Dis you know LFC were looking at signing Mouriniho before Rafa.. they looked at both Rafa and Jose.. and Rafa was cheaper.. so Mouriniho went to Chelsea and we all know what he did there..
Just imagine if he'd been here? We'd have won our first EPL title..
Anyway.. thats in the past.. question is whose good enough to take us foward? Hiddink?, Guilitt? Van basten?

Nothing in Football has changed since the 90's apart from the Hair cuts & Kenny was involved in management long after that .
Its time to quit being sentimental & have faith in the man , believe me he wouldnt put his name forward if he couldnt do the job .
You seem to forget how close Chelski were to a title under Ranieri before Mouriniho took over & spent hundreds of millions on an already top 4 side .
Realistically our choices are Kenny & if Kenny doesn't want it ?
Kenny has won everything in the game as a player & O'Neil the same - 1 FA cup but the difference being Kenny was an outright match winner an icon & leader where as O'Neil was more of an unsung hero like Kuyt .
Either way both automatically have the players respect on the training ground .
Either one will rally the troops , get them playing for each other & take us as near the top as humanly possible from where we lay now .
Both have a proven track record from this position .Both having accomplished more with a lot less in much more difficult circumstances .
Kenny would need no time to settle or for the players to get used to him , where as O'Neil would need time .
As far as I can see there is only one man for the job , we are in last chance saloon & cant afford not to appoint him .
We need a hero , someone we can believe in & nobody can fit that bill at LFC apart from Kenny .
I genuinely thought that the off field goings on had hindered us this season, and thought that now the take over was complete that it would give the team the much needed shot in the arm!! how VERY wrong, they are completley devoid of any confidence and that im sorry to say comes from management!!! Roy youve gotta go now lad!!! youre not inspiring them nor picking the right team!!
When roy was given the job I was 50/50 on the appointment, he certainly has a lot more man-management than rafa and he proved he can do tactics and inspire players with fulham.
That said, and i know it is still early days, he has really failed to make any difference at all to the team as a whole. Signing konchesky was poor, this has only added to the bunch of average players rafa brought to the club. Most of all, he like rafa, failed again to sign (or loan) a forward partner for torres.
Waiting until 20 mins from time to make any changes was beyond belief; is Roy really Rafa in a mask???
I have to say, I really like Roy. He seems like a real gentleman and really does try hard and put his best into it...unfortunately that's not enough. We need someone much more ruthless. I don't think Klinsman is the man for the job either.
King Kenny for now, and if he's doing well KEEP HIM!

Yes he is a very likeable guy, but let's face it he's out of his depth.
Bring in JCole suggested 4-3-3 system but that requires a strong midfield. Instead he let Mascherano & Aquilani go......
I think he got a wee bit overconfident in his coaching skills. I would hate to see us fire him, but that's what now has to happen.
King Kenny should be able to handle 1/3 of a season, someone like Klinsmann has to be the future.
